Enjoy the magnificent mountain scenery of Saanenland and the Fribourg Alps as you hike from Schönried up to the Rellerli via Bire to Sparenmoos.

From Schönried you walk up to the Rellerli (1,833 metres above sea level). After just over an hour's uphill hiking, you reach the Rellerligrat. Here you can admire the 360-degree view of the entire Saanenland mountain panorama. After another short climb you take a 1.5 km panoramic path towards Bire. From there to the Nüjeberg it is quite a level walk except for a short ascent and descent. You have the option of stopping for refreshments on the Nüjeberg or the Hüsliberg or you can continue on to Sparenmoos. Also at Sparenmoos you can take in the views from the MUMA buvette or the Site Alp.

From Sparenmoos you can either hike down the last 4 km to Zweisimmen, take the hiking taxi, or rent a scooter at Site Alp and enjoy an exciting ride back to the Zweisimmen train station.
